These cakes are lovely little sweet treats perfect for sharing with friends. Dot them with some extra white chocolate buttons for even more chocolatey flavour.

  4. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, bicarb, salt and ginger.

  5. Mix the two bowls of ingredients together until fully combined.

  6. Cook for 25 minutes and allow cooling before icing.

  7. To make the icing, beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.

  9. Ice the cakes either using a palette knife or a piping bag.
